The first Pure Michigan Social Entrepreneurship Challenge, a private-public venture to support entrepreneurial good in the state, announced their winners this week.
The challenge awarded an estimated $97,000 in prizes for entrepreneurs and non-profits that were working to build a better way of life in Michigan. The turnout was tremendous with over 160 teams submitting ideas and an estimated 500 people at the event.
“Through the Pure Michigan Social Entrepreneurship Challenge, we’re unleashing change agents all around the state who are harnessing business to better our local and global communities,” said Elizabeth Garlow of Michigan Corps. “At Michigan Corps, we’re excited to support an emerging movement of social entrepreneurs in Michigan who are clearly ready to connect with one another and resources to advance their missions.”
